Unalaska, Alaska is closely based on Wolf Larsens experiences living and working on Americas final frontier. Unalaska, Alaska is about life on commercial fishing boats at the top of the world. The main character Jay works 115 hour weeks on the Bering Sea, which has some of the worst weather in the world. After a year and a half on the fishing boats Jay begins living and working on the island of Unalaska, Alaska which is one of the most remote corners of the North American continent. The novel Unalaska, Alaska is as wild as the island itself - an untamed frontier town where guns and groceries are sold side by side at the local supermarket.

The Thousand-Mile War, a powerful story of the battles of the United States and Japan on the bitter rim of the North Pacific, has been acclaimed as one of the great accounts of World War II. Brian Garfield, a novelist and screenwriter whose works have sold some 20 million copies, was searching for a new subject when he came upon the story of this "forgotten war" in Alaska. He found the history of the brave men who had served in the Aleutians so compelling and so little known that he wrote the first full-length history of the Aleutian campaign, and the book remains a favorite among Alaskans. The war in the Aleutians was fought in some of the worst climatic conditions on earth for men, ships, and airplanes. The sea was rough, the islands craggy and unwelcoming, and enemy number one was always the weather--the savage wind, fog, and rain of the Aleutian chain. The fog seemed to reach even into the minds of the military commanders on both sides, as they directed men into situations that so often had tragic results. Frustrating, befuddling, and still the subject of debate, the Aleutian campaign nevertheless marked an important turn of the war in favor of the United States. Now, half a century after the war ended, more of the fog has been lifted. In the updated University of Alaska Press edition, Garfield supplements his original account, which was drawn from statistics, personal interviews, letters, and diaries, with more recently declassified photographs and many more illustrations.

In this sweeping epic of the northernmost American frontier, James A. Michener guides us through Alaska’s fierce terrain and history, from the long-forgotten past to the bustling present. As his characters struggle for survival, Michener weaves together the exciting high points of Alaska’s story: its brutal origins; the American acquisition; the gold rush; the tremendous growth and exploitation of the salmon industry; the arduous construction of the Alcan Highway, undertaken to defend the territory during World War II. A spellbinding portrait of a human community fighting to establish its place in the world, Alaska traces a bold and majestic saga of the enduring spirit of a land and its people. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from James A. Michener's Hawaii. Praise for Alaska “Few will escape the allure of the land and people [Michener] describes. . . . Alaska takes the reader on a journey through one of the bleakest, richest, most foreboding, and highly inviting territories in our Republic, if not the world. . . . The characters that Michener creates are bigger than life.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review “Always the master of exhaustive historical research, Michener tracks the settling of Alaska [in] vividly detailed scenes and well-developed characters.”—Boston Herald “Michener is still, sentence for sentence, writing’s fastest attention grabber.”—The New York Times
In this compelling narrative of words and vibrant images, Ken Wilson captures a complex portrait of the Aleutian Islands and its peoples. A book years in the making, Wilson presents a collection of striking photographs that powerfully depict the islands’ tumultuous weather and stunning landscape that have drawn so many to the islands’ shores. Wilson’s stunning images capture the islands’ unpredictable moods, from the swirling fogs to the windy shores to the lush greens of summer. The accompanying essays tell stories of life on the island: the stories of the Unangan people, who have made the islands their home for centuries, tell of ancestral ties and ancient legends that ground their connections to the island. In contrast, the anecdotes from tourists and newer island residents discuss the allure of the islands’ tempestuous beauty and the rich history of the region. A groundbreaking work of photography and oral history, The Aleutian Islands is a captivating volume that writes a new chapter in the documented history of Alaska life and culture.
